(DAYTON, Ohio) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that authorities with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Attorney General's Health Care Fraud Section and Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General served a federal search warrant on a suspected 'pill mill' in Dayton.
Agents served the warrant early Thursday morning at a medical facility 2838 Linden Avenue in Dayton. Authorities have been investigating activity at the location for more than a year.
"Prescription drug abuse is a very serious problem in Ohio, and we will aggressively investigate any medical facility that shows signs of suspected drug diversion," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. "Too many Ohioans have died from abusing improperly prescribed pills. We don't want any more families to suffer."
Several boxes of evidence, including patient records were seized.
No one has been arrested or charged in connection with this ongoing investigation at this time.
